My time has come! When my crown is reunited with the Eternal Flame, I shall be restored to my full might! I will tower over the mountains and bury my sword deep in Asgard...
~ Surtur
I AM ASGARD'S DOOM!!!!!
~ Surtur's last words before killing Hela and himself to destroy Asgard.

Surtur is a supporting antagonist in the 2017 live action film, Thor: Ragnarok.

He is an immense fire demon and the Lord of Muspelheim, who is prophecied to bring forth the cataclysmic event known as Ragnarök - which will culminate in him destroying Asgard. He is seemingly immortal and immensely powerful.

He is played via motion capture by the film's director, Taika Waititi, while his voice is provided by Clancy Brown who also played The Kurgan, Byron Hadley, Lex Luthor, Mr Krabs, Undertow, Mr Freeze, Savage Opress, Chris Bradford and General Wade Eiling.

Biography

In his search for answers regarding the Infinity Stones, Thor is captured in Muspelheim and brought before Surtur. The Fire Lord taunts Thor and reveals to his captive that his father, Odin, no longer rules Asgard.

Furthermore, with Thor's absence he has left the realm open for attacks. Surtur claims that he will soon destroy Asgard when he unites his crown with the Eternal Flame that Odin, after taking it from Surtur millennia ago, locked in the vaults of Asgard.

However, Thor escapes his imprisonment and is able to defeat Surtur in battle. In order to prevent Surtur's prophecy from coming true, Thor takes Surtur's crown with him and locks it up in the vaults of Asgard.

When Hela invades Asgard and reanimates its fallen soldiers (known as the Berserkers) as her army, Thor realizes that Ragnarok is the only way to stop Hela and that Asgard is not defined by its location but by its people. He then orders his brother Loki to place Surtur's crown in the Eternal Flame, which Loki does so.

This calls forth Surtur, who immediately starts annihilating Asgard by impaling his own blade into the land, killing Hela and the remaining Berserkers in the process. While Thor, Loki, Valkyrie and Hulk can safely evacuate the citizens of Asgard in one of the Grandmaster's giant spaceships, they are forced to watch Ragnarök unfold as Surtur fully thrusts his blade into Asgard, which not only destroys it, but also kills himself in the process, leaving only asteroids in its stead.

Though Surtur has finally accomplished in death for unleashing Ragnarok and destroying Asgard, his path of destruction was nothing but in vain as Thor have evacuated all of the Asgardians and planned to transport them to Earth as their new home.
